Wrong EAS CO2 accounting

The European Astronomical Society

We wrote a letter to the EAS president urging the EAS to provide a corrected accounting for their UN climate neutral now pledge. The current one misses 99% of their emissions by ignoring the conferences organized by EAS that are eventually part of the “Scope-3” emissions of the EAS. EAS cannot hope to achieve the self-stated goal of „climate neutrality“ if it incorrectly excluding 99% of the relevant emissions. The letter urges EAS to publish a correction to the declaration and calculation and submit it to the UNFCCC and to correct the erroneous statements in the EAS newsletter.
